The problem with the soul & body argument comes with anesthetics, if your soul truly existed separate from the body you would be able to experience something during operations, which is not the case. I have been for about 9 eye operations in my life and one lasted well over 7 hours. I can tell you that during that time "I" did not exist. If there was such a thing as a soul that lived on beyond your death surely it would not "sleep" at the same time as when your body does?
.... and thanks for all the fish.

the brain is more like a massive zhitty raid array, if one part is lost most of the data could be recovered from elsewhere.
but good point keeper, i guess we don't realise what we have, and i don't think that we would when we lose it either, extremely sad how little we care
People my response was tongue-in-cheek. If there was such a smiley I would have used it.
entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem
aah, Deep-pockets Chopra. Still milking the gullible.
I once dated a girl who lisped, she wanted to watch Faith Like Potatoes. 20 minutes in it dawned that we weren't watching a movie about the Elephant Man...
